This week in Summer Reading!

There's no better time to explore your Forsyth County Public Library than in the summer. We have all sorts of programs for kids, teens, and adults at each of our ten libraries. It's fun to travel around to the different libraries, and summer is a great time to do that. Here's just a small sampling of what's happening this week.

Carver School Road Branch Library will be hosting a special visit with Your Favorite Sister Princesses- Tuesday June, 16 starting at 10:30am, Elsa and Anna look-alikes will be singing and storytelling with fans of all ages. Later that same day, starting at 2pm, take a trip across the sea to learn about the culture, food, and history of Asia with their International Foods program.

Kernersville Branch is hosting a Teen Matinee Movie, June 16th starting at 3:30pm. Free popcorn, drinks and a recently released superhero movie! Crafting and eating, two of our favorite things, create an Edible Bird's Nest at our Malloy/Jordan East Winston Heritage Center, Friday June 19th @ 3:30.

We've got a special guest for our adult readers, Author Dorothea Benton Frank, will be hosting a talk and book signing at our Reynolda Manor Branch - June 19th @ 12 noon. Space is limited, please call, 703-2960, to reserve your seat. Thursday June 18th (2-3:30) Walkertown Branch will be having a Beginner's Photography. They'll cover topics that can be used with any type of camera.

Don’t forget our Summer Reading prizes: every reader that completes a summer reading log (that’s 480 minutes for kids and teens, 3 books for adults) will be entered into drawings for Barnes & Noble gift cards worth $25 and $100, AND every child under the age of 13 who completes a reading log will also be entered into a drawing to win two free tickets to a Wake Forest football game. Go Deacs!

Check out our Summer Reading page to link to calendars, booklists, information, and to sign up for your summer reading log. It’s easier to do than ever before and we are here to assist you with all your questions. Just remember that every hero has a story and, if you unmask yours, you can escape the ordinary @ the library!
